About Portrait of V. E. Repin, the Artist's brother

The artwork entitled “Portrait of V. E. Repin, the Artist’s brother” is a creation by Ilya Repin, a prominent artist associated with the Realism art movement. Painted in 1867, the work was rendered in oil on canvas, measuring 86 by 68 centimeters. The genre of this piece is portraiture, and it is housed at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Russia. The artwork deftly captures the likeness and character of the artist’s brother, embodying the aesthetic and principles of Realism.

The artwork showcases a young man seated in a relaxed yet pensive pose against an understated background. The subject is dressed in a vibrant red shirt with ornamentation and a brown vest, suggesting a casual but distinctive appearance. The brushwork demonstrates a deft blend of detail and texture, which brings a lifelike quality to the skin tones and fabric of the clothing. Intricacies in the facial expression convey a moment of contemplation or perhaps a mild engagement with something outside of the viewer’s perspective. The color palette is warm and earthly, drawing focus to the figure’s intense gaze and the thoughtful disposition captured by the artist.
